In My Mailbox (30) & Stacking the Shelves (36)

Welcome to this week's In My Mailbox. In My Mailbox (IMM) is hosted by The Story Siren, who was inspired by a fellow book blogger Alea of Pop Culture Junkie. It features books I have bought or received for review.

Stacking the Shelves by Tynga`s Reviews is about adding books to my shelves I received during the past week whether it is physical or virtual.

Bought from Amazon:

The Golden Dynasty by Kristen Ashley

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Making Faces by Amy Harmon

I got awesome books this week! I just finished reading The Golden Dynasty and I cannot tell you how much I loved this book. My review will be up sometime this week. I have been hearing a lot about Cruel Beauty so I decided to buy it. I bought Making Faces because one of the book blogs I follow says it is a great book and I value her opinion so I am excited to start this one as well. 
There should be some great books coming out this month. Should be great!

Waiting on Wednesday (34)

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I love the cover for this book. It is beautiful. I also love Beauty and the Beast so I book based on it is definitely right up my alley. I am a big fan of stories with Nyx so I am incredibly excited!

Expected Publication Date: January 28, 2014

Synopsis: (Taken from Goodreads)
Graceling meets Beauty and the Beast in this sweeping fantasy about one girl's journey to fulfill her destiny and the monster who gets in her way-by stealing her heart.

Based on the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, Cruel Beauty is a dazzling love story about our deepest desires and their power to change our destiny.

Since birth, Nyx has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom-all because of a foolish bargain struck by her father. And since birth, she has been in training to kill him.

With no choice but to fulfill her duty, Nyx resents her family for never trying to save her and hates herself for wanting to escape her fate. Still, on her seventeenth birthday, Nyx abandons everything she's ever known to marry the all-powerful, immortal Ignifex. Her plan? Seduce him, destroy his enchanted castle, and break the nine-hundred-year-old curse he put on her people.

But Ignifex is not at all what Nyx expected. The strangely charming lord beguiles her, and his castle-a shifting maze of magical rooms-enthralls her.

As Nyx searches for a way to free her homeland by uncovering Ignifex's secrets, she finds herself unwillingly drawn to him. Even if she could bring herself to love her sworn enemy, how can she refuse her duty to kill him? With time running out, Nyx must decide what is more important: the future of her kingdom, or the man she was never supposed to love.

What books are you waiting to be released???
